Teens Run DC

Teens Run DC promotes the physical, social, and emotional well-being of underserved youth through mentoring and distance running. When Teens Run DC sought out a Fair Chance partnership, their passionate leadership was brimming with ideas but needed support. Fair Chance was able to give the organization a vision of what was possible.

By the end of their partnership, Teens Run DC streamlined their programming, hired key staff, began to track students’ academic progress, and started a middle school pilot program that would help build a pipeline for students to work with Teens Run DC through high school. Now, Teens Run DC is in eight schools and conducts in-school, after-school, and Saturday programming.
